Novak Djokovic as the world’s greatest tennis player (Part 1)

Growing up under war bombs, the world’s No. 1 player Novak Djokovic is also a loving-hearted and full of generosity.

Break Federer’s record

After the 8th Australian Open championship and the 17th Grand Slam title in his career, Novak Djokovic regained the No. 1 position on the ATP rankings from Rafael Nadal. In addition, the Serbian tennis player is only 3 Grand Slam titles lower than Roger Federer.

Second is none other than the king of Nadal clay court with 19 titles. Nadal will most likely catch Federer at the French Open, the tournament he has won 12 championship titles. However, at the present time, Djokovic is the name most talked about.

At the age of 32, Djokovic is the youngest member of the Big Three and in particular, he has won a total of 13 recent Grand Slam titles since the US Open 2016.

In theory, Federer can play until 2021 and longer as long as he still has the motivation and desire to win. But at this age, with both form and fitness going down, it’s hard for the Swiss to win the championship again at the Grand Slam.

However, as long as he does not give up, Federer is still trying to improve his achievements to create a safe distance with Nadal and Djokovic. Wimbledon will be the best opportunity for Federer to win the 21st Grand Slam title because here, he has got 8 titles in his career and one of them is 2017, when he was 35 years old.

Statistics show that, since 2014, Federer and Djokovic have met 18 times but Federer only won 6 times. Of these 6 victories, there was no match in the Grand Slam. Exactly the last time Federer won the Serbian racquet at a Grand Slam was the Wimbledon semifinal in 2012.

Federer also only won Djokovic once in the Grand Slam final, at the US Open 2007, while Djokovic won in the last 4 finals against the Swiss racket since 2014. So, even if Federer extends the After one year, two years or many years, it is very difficult for him to win Djokovic in the 5-set format.
